Collaborative Divorce and CLII

Collaborative Divorce is an out-of-court divorce process that helps divorcing couples end their marriage with dignity and respect. It is a highly supported divorce process that provides people with a greater level of privacy and control than traditional litigation.

Collaborative Divorce is a growing trend in divorce, both in the United States and abroad. In 2017, the Illinois Legislature passed the Collaborative Process Act, which clearly established Collaborative Process as a recognized way of getting divorced in Illinois.

CLII and the Media

The Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois (CLII) is the leading Collaborative Divorce organization in Illinois.  It offers thought-leadership and expertise to the press and other media outlets.
